Does this model vehicle exist in the US?
Recently i purchased a new car in Australia. It is called a Holden Astra CDX Wagon (link below);
The car itself is made by a company in Belgium called Opel. And it is called an Opel Astra Sports Wagon in Belgium (pic attached). Now i would like to acquire some Thule roof racks for my new car (as this is the only company in Australia that has roof racks for this vehicle) & Thule make two types of roof racks for this car. Ones that have a square bar and another that has an aero version.
Now my question is this. I didn't realise that Thule make a tandem rack (they don't sell it here in Australia) otherwise i would consider it. I was thinking of getting the Yakima rack. But i thought i would jump on the American Thule website to see what bars they recommend for the Thule Tandem rack but Holden or Opel do not exist as a car manufacturer on the Thule.com website so there is a possibility that the vehicle is known by some other name in America?? Or perhaps it is just not imported into the States?
Does anyone know if this make/model of vehicle exists in the US? If so could someone kindly let me know. That would be most appreciated.
